Are you loving what you're reading right now, /lit/? If not, I recommend this
I didn't really care for it:
30 pages in: Wow, this is pretty funny, innovative.
60 pages in: Jesus fucking christ! How many goddamn characters are in this!?!?!
100: What the fuck! Is this going anywhere! Will you lay off with this goofy random shit? It's seriously getting old! And how many more fucking characters are going to show up?!? Fuck this! *throws book*, imma go jerk off.
ITT: what we are reading atm
>The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists
>Psalm at Journey's End - Erik Fosnes Hansen
>Pandora's Star - Peter F. Hamilton
>Never Let Me Go - Kazuo Ichiguro
The Game takes like two seconds to read dude, it's basically one big anecdote with some commentary thrown in. It pisses me off when people read that and think they've learned something, the point the author is trying to make is the whole "Game" is just a shallow net for shallow fish and a complete waste of time
Eh. I read some of it, Neil Straus is much more sympathetic to it.
Models is much more critical of "the game" and actually provides some decent advice on how to be a more confident, more social, happier person.
>inb4 you're an autist.
Yes. Yes I am, that's why I try and solve my problems through reading about them.
Which edition should I purchase?
Or, should I get another one completely?
I really fell in love with Albert Camus. Especially with "The Myth of Sisyphus". It has changed my whole perspective of the sense of life and the obligations we have.

>tfw studying all weekend for exam on Monday

It's on a self-selected topic related to critical race theory. I think technically we were supposed to tell our professor what the topic was, but it's a bit late for that now. At this point in law school I'm just happy passing classes
this thread is shit
you could knock out 2500 words in no time if you weren't such a worthless sack of organs that anyone else could put to better use
you have a month
just stop breathing for the rest of our sake
>wake up at 7 am to study for exams
>sit at desk at 8am ready to begin
>mfw it's 2:46 pm and i've just been fucking around online
Is there any good m/m romance out there? Or is it all fanfic tier shit?
There's plenty of /lit/ with homoerotic tones if you look at them a certain way, but I can't say I can think of many gay books worth reading.
If you're desperate, you could always read Hogg.
So does anyone actually understand it?
Which philosopher or writer had the most JUST life?
Whose entire body of work is worth reading?
I'd nominate Nietzsche, Hume, Braudel, Kafka, perhaps Nabokov.
What are good books with mediocre to bad prose? (i.e. books that have good ideas but aren't all that impressive on an aesthetic level)
